Social Savvy: How to walk in beauty through the forest of these words.

MC Hammer, U Can’t Touch This
I am devastated by a total failure to illuminate therein, where the beautiful, good, and true juxtapose with our everyday, our challenges, and our heart’s desire.
I’d like to take it off my blog. It and, perhaps, two hundred other blog posts. All of which have no medicine.
But then I think to myself, those blog posts will better serve me where they stand. Like garden gnomes. As reminders of how easy it is to fail to serve my own passion and my purpose. Those miserable blog posts will keep me humble and remind me that self-defeat is the easiest thing. And the hardest.
There’s also three thousand or more impudent tweets – each one an individual serving of humble pie.

Perhaps, the Library of Congress has archived them for the amusement of junior intelligence officers. Or a misguided fan of my science fiction novels. Yet to be.
And, yes, I will make the same mistake on Pinterest. Just as I see everyone else making that mistake. What the hell are we doing in social media, anyway? Taking out the trash?! Or are we creating trash?
One way or the other – we’re doing more trash than the good speak, heart to heart.
A social media schedule is a hampster wheel. Bill Dorman said it. It’s spin going nowhere. Faster.
